lyrics

Hose off the pollen and the dust
From the birds who made the fuss
At the truck stop outside Vacaville
Rinse the bumper of its insects
The taillight and its slight defect
Memory of a saloon near Cloverdale

Clean up start again
Put your feet up my friend
Soon enough we’ll be up we’ll be going
Clean up start again
Who knows where or when
We’ll be off we’ll be on our way

The vacuum is next, how much time will it take
To suck up the crumbs of those cookies you didn’t bake
Packed up and eaten in the car
Souvenirs of times spent playing at the Bazaar Café

Clean up start again
Put your feet up my friend
Soon enough we’ll be up we’ll be going
Clean up start again
Who knows where or when
We’ll be off we’ll be on our way

Yeah, leaving is so easy
It’s a little harder to stay a while
You get to know how the numbers change
The familiar becomes strange,
You get used to things, then you turn around
And it’s time to go

Clean up start again
Put your feet up my friend
Soon enough we’ll be up we’ll be going
Clean up start again
Who knows where or when
We’ll be off we’ll be on our way
